Richard Wright, founder, keyboardist and pianist for Pink Floyd passed away on 15th September, 2008 of cancer.Richard Wright was an influential musician. His richly textured keyboard playing was a big part of the psychedelic/progressive sound of Pink Floyd. Not one to hog all the limelight, he was the pivotal rhythm man among the fab four.
It's just shocking. Here I was hoping for a Pink Floyd reunion.
God knows, maybe the heavens need to be psyched up!
Rest in Peace Richard. You'll be missed.

Down and out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about.
And who'll deny its what the fighting's all about?
Out of the way, its a busy day
I've got things on my mind.
For the want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died
